Fortnite : and now…MONOPOLY !
Epic Game X Hasbro
Epic and Hasbro have revealed a Fortnite version of Monopoly that replaces the usual property trading with elements from the battle royale shooter. Island locations replace buildings (popular drop point Tilted Towers is the new Boardwalk), while health points replace money. Don’t just call it a cosmetic change, though — there are genuine changes to the game mechanics.
Fortnite‘s ever-present storm will manifest the game — storm-struck locations will take two lives each. The dice will also be split into movement and action rolls, so you can shoot a rival or defend yourself before you move.
The deal will include NERF blasters too designed after Fortnite guns. The licensing deal was brokered by sports and media management group IMG .
The new iteration of MONOPOLY will hit shelves at major U.S. and U.K. retailers in Fall 2018 and will expand to additional markets next year. The NERF blasters, along with other licensed products, will roll out in 2019.
Waht do you think of this Monopoly? And the Nerf blasters?
